Whether you like them fried, boiled, or scrambled — eggs are an egg-cellent source of protein that can be eaten any time of the day.

To help support local farms in the area, we’ve rounded up eight places where you can find farm-fresh eggs around Fort Worth.

🥚 What does farm fresh mean?

Compared to store-bought eggs, local farm eggs are richer in color, the yolk is denser, and they’re fresher. Not only are you getting healthier eggs when you buy farm eggs, but there’s also transparency in knowing where your food comes from.

One of the primary reasons fresh eggs are more nutritional than conventionally raised eggs is the chickens’ diet.

According to Cedar Ridge Farm in Pickton, eggs bought from a grocery store or large-scale operations are not as nutritious, because the chickens are likely kept inside or in small cages. Chickens that are roaming the yard or pasture are pecking at grass and bugs, getting more leafy greens, and natural proteins than those raised in poultry houses.

Studies show that farm-fresh eggs contain 25% more vitamin E, 75% more beta carotene, and up to 20 times more Omega-3 fatty acid.
